God is faithful to God’s promises.
Before you die, you will find the acceptance and the love you crave. It will not come in the way you expect. It will not follow your needs and wishes. But it will fill your heart and satisfy your deepest desire.
There is nothing to hold on to but this promise.
Everything else has been taken away from you
Cling to that naked promise in faith.
Your faith will heal you.
-Henri Nouwen, The Inner Voice of Love
